Graphical Administrative Tools: All the graphical administrative tools are accessible from the menu at Applications > System Tools, Applications > Administration and Applications > Preferences. One that I will like to spotlight is Ailurus, a multi-function administrative program for the GNOME desktop. It eliminates the need for the many small administrative applications used for customizing the desktop,
One of its more advanced features makes it possible to take snapshots of the system, and view changes since a particular date.
Another takes a “pulse” of the system and suggests changes or modifications. Ailurus is accessible from Applications > System Tools > Ailurus, and also from the Favorites view of the menu.
Security: Fusion boasts the same security profile and posture as Fedora 14. The firewall is enabled by default and there is the graphical firewall manager. SELinux module, a module that provides mandatory access control, is loaded – in enforcing mode.
Resources: Download links for Thorium are available here. This distribution could use some help, if you are in a position to contribute.
Screenshots: View a few more screenshots from a test installation of Fusion Linux 4.
